Good info, Eric. AFAIK, you cannot EV and wildcard...Just something to
consider. I'm not a fan of wildcards anyway, but a few subject alt names can be
handy. Plan ahead!

these days there are essentially two types of SSL cert, DV and EV
DV = domain validated. anyone can get one. this is the same idea for the $9 SSL
certs and free letsencrypt. you only need to prove you control the
domain/server it's issued for.
EV = extended validation, you need to prove your corporate identity. should
cost around $85/year.
EV will result in the big green banner with company name in most modern web

Im no webdude is the main reason. I know alot of people use it, phishermen love
them. Theyre "trusted, but not verified" which, to no webdude me, says "IT WILL
BECOME UNTRUSTED". I hate godaddy, but theyre not likely to become untrusted,
so its not something id have to deal with with little to no knowlege. plus I
dont understand this 90 day thing

Subject: [AFMUG] ssl certs
Our current cert for our billing server (powercode) is about to expire. For
some time web browsers have been throwing up the insecure flag, probably needed
to update it.
What does a guy need in a certificate these days? godaddy is where we have it
from, they have all kinds of options like green bar guarantee cert, etc.
I have thought about getting one thats good for more than one page, just to get
rid of the annoying security screen on our managment port and mobile. but the
wildcard cert seems more pricey than id prefer for something thats just
convienient rather than needed
